'Living in Sin' - What does that even mean? Same sex attraction is NOT a life style choice

Living in Sin.

What does that even mean?

It means absolutely nothing at all.

Sin, as beauty, is all in the mind of the beholder

'Sin" is truly only in the mind of the beholder -

and the believer.

Religious psycho-babble is merely the manifestations of a few closed minded bigots.

God hates no-one in spite of what the religions teach us.

Brokers of Fear

Theology Defined:

  • 1) the study of God and God's relationship to the world.
  • 2) a theological theory or system.
  • 3) theory of specialized training.

All of our present day beliefs are based on theoretical conjecture from thousands of years in the past.

Time has proven that much of that "theory" was incorrect.

All of this incorrectness was exposed through scientific empirical data and is indisputable.

  • (examples: the earth is flat, the sun rotates around the earth, the earth is the center of the universe, etc, etc. )

Before science was accepted as indisputable fact, 'theologians' were accepted as indisputable because they touted themselves as self proclaimed mouth pieces of God.

People accepted this as truth out of fear and ignorance. This fear and ignorance is still present in our modern day religious beliefs. It is being taught during the indoctrination of our children into the various religions around the globe.

Heresy? I think not. This was just another "scary" word used by religion to put fear into people who questioned the veracity of what they were preaching.

The real power of religion over the masses is FEAR.

  • Fear of punishment.
  • Fear of an eternal damnation "theory".
  • Fear of the unknown.
  • Fear of death, etc..., you get my drift here?

Without fear mongering (peddling), religions would have fallen along the wayside hundreds of years ago. And spirituality would have taken precedence instead. As is indicative of today's religions - they do not represent spirituality at all, but rather teach bigotry, intolerance and hatred; and advocate blind faith as their core values

Theologians, although intelligent and persuasive for their times, were firstly mongers of fear and promoters of hatred. For those who do not know what ''mongers'' are:

A 'monger' is a person who attempts to stir up, or spread something, that is usually petty or discreditable.

They are "brokers" of hatred and "brokers" of fear.

In today's world

Now lets translate this information in today's perspectives.

The first and only perpetrators of hatred against homosexuality were the early Christian leaders (of the Roman Catholic Church created and owned by the Roman government), in their attempt to increase the numbers and strength of their armies to fight their enemies. (MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT - there was no other reason for this phenomenon to begin.)

We all know the 'game' that most of us played at one time or another in which one person whispers something in the ear of another, who in turn whispers into the ear of the next person, and so on.. When the last person who is whispered to, says it aloud it is nothing like the original whispered statement.

Then put this in the perspective of repeating something, not only from ear to ear, but from year to year, and you might be able to understand and rationalize for yourself how distorted this 'law' and other religious lies have become.

This "law" was man made and had nothing to do with religious theory, or God himself.

Otherwise there would be eleven commandments instead of ten.

Today we use the terms 'sin' and 'crime' interchangeably. They are not.

"Sin"

is in the minds of the beholder passed down from generation to generation. No matter how many times it is repeated it is still only a manifestation in the minds of the beholder.

"Crime"

is a gross violation of man's laws. A grave offense against humanity. (murder, theft, physical or mental abuse, exploitation of children, and so on).

Not all crimes are sins: (drug abuse, D.U.I's, prostitution, etc.. ).

Not all sins are crimes: (telling lies, not going to church, not believing in religion or its teachings, sex, gluttony, etc..) [If they were, then the entire planet would be considered a penal colony].

A true "Christian philosophy" promotes love - not hatred; ergo, the promoters of hatred cannot call themselves Christians, for they are not. And they should be denounced for doing so by all 'decent' people, Christian or otherwise.

The greatest sin and crime of all time is implanting false and harmful ideas into the minds of children.

It is child abuse at its very worst. The damage it causes is immeasurable, and often irreversible. And its negative effects are carried throughout the lifetime of the child.

Parents are supposed to be the protectors of their children, not the perpetuaters of their legacy of "no choice" religion and/or politics.

Thats about as clearly as I've ever seen it expained. Too bad most christians will argue and never have a clue as to why.
